What fall train rides can you take in Iowa?

In the autumn, it’s impossible to not crave a fall train ride in Iowa! The colors, smells, and overall vibe of the season here is downright irresistible, especially when enjoyed through the lens of an old-fashioned pastime. We are absolutely enchanted by the aforementioned Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad’s annual autumn event, but they’re one of several old school train rides that Iowans can embark on. You can enjoy an excursion on a spooktacular railroad in Mount Pleasant, or you can enjoy a train-themed adventure on any given fall day.

Fall is absolutely enchanting! There’s a certain crispness in the air, and there’s a certain inexplicable atmosphere of inner warmth that the season plays up. Here in Iowa, locals love flocking to Reiman Gardens around this season. Their grounds positively glow under the illumination of pumpkins! You are sure to have a spectacular time at some of our favorite fall festivals, but you will also certainly find success asking locals for advice. Many small towns in this state feature their own unique festivals, and many are notably underrated.
